    Technical View:

    The S&P with a quiet week as the range contracted to just seventeen points below 2,558. Breadth was very strong to close the week as we approach the start of Q3 earnings season. The 8-EMA hasn’t been breached since 9/25 with the trend strong and the 13-EMA below at 2,540 and the 20-EMA at 2,530 key support. Looking at a weekly time-frame we see that we’re not near being overbought with MACD off its highest levels of 2017 and RSI just above 70. It was the third close in the last four weeks above our Bollinger Band, so potential for more consolidation but the trend is higher on most timeframes. The measured target remains 2,560/2,565. Bonds with a big rebound last week off the 200-MA and now back above the major moving averages while gold with the first positive close since early September.

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 10/11 showed a 4.2% increase in bullish sentiment and a 1.7% increase in neutral sentiment. Bearish sentiment fell 5.9% for the week and now nearly 4% below the long-term average.  NAAIM Exposure fell again this week to 77.4 after hitting recent highs near 96. Equity fund flows showed $2.9B of inflows, the largest in four weeks, while taxable bonds had a $3.5B inflow. The percentage of stocks trading above their 50-MA rose marginally to 75.8% while the percentage above their 200-MA was 74.6%. Summation rose again to 928.07, the highest level since August 2016 while cumulative TICK hit new highs. The 50-MA of the CBOE Equity P/C ratio fell this week to 0.65. SPX DSI closed the week around 80 which remains strong but off of recent highs near 86.
